Outdoor Halloween projects to start NOW

…because the indoors can wait! I scoured the internet for the best Halloween decorations to make your neighbors jealous. Get these done in the next week or so, and we will move on to the indoors. I reserve the right to amend this list as I find more, feel free to leave your ideas in the comments!

Making your own tombstones are more cost effective and unique from the ones you buy at Walgreens. Make a graveyard with some tombstones and lights. But when it comes to a graveyard, remember to keep it simple. If you start cluttering up your lawn with bones, body parts, and cobwebs it can look junky.
